Past Exhibition / Group Presentation
24 - 27 October, 2013
The Third Line is pleased to be participating in the 40th edition of FIAC, Paris, and will be exhibiting works by Abbas Akhavan, Ebtisam Abdulaziz, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Hayv Kahraman, Babak Golkar and Youssef Nabil. The booth explores the theme of Making Visible and looks at the nuances that these artists explore in their work which help to bring to attention that which is concealed or not immediately perceptible.
The artists featured rely on the transcendent quality of art to not only shed light on the obvious, but also on the possibility of what could be seen, thus expressing the belief that the manifest world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many other, latent realities. In this way, art does not just merely reproduce the visible, but makes visible what is commonly not seen.
Abbas Akhavan is also participating in the Hors les Murs programme at the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle.
